Advice needed from a builder?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Im after a very general and ballpark figure for a cost on blocking up 1 doorway in my house and knocking a doorway into another wall.

 

Obviously I cant get specific quotes on here but as a ballpark figure how much should I expect to pay for this?

 

Also, there could be quite a big plastering venture needed; to skim the walls of 5 rooms + stairs.

 

Any help would be good, I dont want to get ripped off! :help:

Not a builder, it seems they don't like to give ballpark figures on here.

 

Difficulty of moving a door is very much dependent on whether it's stud wall, brick/block or a supporting wall.

 

Plastering, I have had done, cost for stairs ( board & finish) was over £300. Looking at over £1000-1500 for the lot at a rough guess.

i would estimate for labour + materials about £600 for the building work and roughly £1200-£1400 for the plastering work if its a straight forward skimming job.cheers darren.

You need to see the job and what's involved,ball park figures and guessing are no-good.

Base the plastering on approx £50 a wall plus materials and like others have said it depends on the construction of the walls to be blocked up and demolished.

£1200-£1400 for the plastering? We had 3 full rooms done for that?
